The excerpt overlaps the images. Your images are at the correct size.
Check the theme css – it may have forced a width on the excerpt. We did the same in Executive.

Yes. If you really want to fine tune it, use a text widget with HTML.

It’s actually less efficient because there are more calls to separate files.
And yes, you can do it with php includes. That’s not WordPress specific, it’s just php.
